Vincent Price and Patricia Morison
7 November 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

From Dec 27 1958, "The Moor's Revenge" was a lighthearted entry perhaps inspired by the May 26 broadcast of THE RESTLESS GUN, "More Than Kin," also concerning Shakespearean players traveling the Old West. Where the John Payne series cast John Carradine and Veda Ann Borg as the performing couple, here we have Vincent Price as Charles Mathews, and Patricia Morison as Victoria Vestris, planning "The Tragedy of Othello: The Moor of Venice" for San Diego, despite warnings from Richard Boone's Paladin, who advises them to avoid any cattle town during a roundup. More trouble arises when an overly enthusiastic audience member makes advances to the beautiful Victoria, unaware that she and Charles are in reality husband and wife, by necessity keeping their relationship a professional secret. Just three years away from THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW, veteran funnyman Morey Amsterdam plays it straight as opera house owner Lucien Bellingham, who hires Paladin to keep the peace during the cattle run, while Vincent Price, like John Carradine before him, was truly in his element as a distinguished Shakespearean actor. Still, the real revelation is lovely 43 year old Patricia Morison, her screen career over by 1948, and subsequent TV career overshadowed by her acclaimed stage presence. She is able to truly let her hair down for this role, her famously lengthy tresses cascading all the way down her back, a wonderful showcase for such a striking actress seen so little on television. Her final appearance was on a memorable CHEERS from 1989, "Send in the Crane," in which Frasier has to fill in for Woody as a party clown.
